    Seems just yesterday he was telling us how much better a country this would be if we'd elected a racist as president.

    Tonight on The Daily Show, he had this comment to make about Bush's ongoing search for a new Supreme Court justice:

    Needless to say, this prompted surprised laughter from the audience.

    Actually the comment came in an interview on Fox, IIRC. But you gotta say one thing for the guy...he's consistent.

    I saw that live on CNN yesterday! I was like wait a minute, man, woman or MINORITY? Unless we're talking about hermaphrodites, I wasn't aware that minorities were considered an alternate gender. You're right Trent, they are barely human. :rolleyes:

    You know, I'd like to give the guy the benefit of the doubt and say this was just another stupid slip of the tongue... but given what I know about the man, it fits him. I wouldn't go so far as to say racist, but whatever the next level down from that is, that would be him. Oh, and dumb.

    Mind-Numbingly Stupid, yet true, quotations by Tom DeLay:

    1) "So many minority youths had volunteered.that there was literally no
    room for patriotic folks like myself." --Tom DeLay, explaining at the
    1988 GOP convention why he and vice presidential nominee Dan Quayle did
    not fight in the Vietnam War.

    2) "Now tell me the truth boys, is this kind of fun?" -Tom Delay, to
    three young hurricane evacuees from New Orleans at the Astrodome in
    Houston, Sept. 9, 2005.

    3) "I AM the federal government." -Tom DeLay, to the owner of Ruth's
    Chris Steak House, after being told to put out his cigar because of
    federal government regulations banning smoking in the building, May 14,

    4)"I am not a federal employee. I am a constitutional officer. My job
    is the Constitution of the United States, I am not a government
    employee. I am in the Constitution." -Tom DeLay, in a CNN interview,
    Dec. 19, 1995.

    5) "Nothing is more important in the face of a war than cutting taxes."
    -Tom DeLay, March 12, 2003.

    6) "Guns have little or nothing to do with juvenile violence. The
    causes of youth violence are working parents who put their kids into
    daycare, the teaching of evolution in the schools, and working mothers
    who take birth control pills." -Tom DeLay, on causes of the Columbine
    High School massacre, 1999.

    7) "A woman can take care of the family. It takes a man to provide
    structure. To provide stability. Not that a woman can't provide
    stability, I'm not saying that... It does take a father, though." -Tom
    DeLay, in a radio interview, Feb. 10, 2004.

    8) "I don't believe there is a separation of church and state. I think
    the Constitution is very clear. The only separation is that there will
    not be a government church." -Tom DeLay.

    9) "Emotional appeals about working families trying to get by on $4.25
    an hour [the minimum wage in 1996] are hard to resist. Fortunately,
    such families do not exist." -Tom DeLay, during a debate in Congress on
    increasing the minimum wage, April 23, 1996.

    10) "We're no longer a superpower. We're a super-duper power." -Tom
    DeLay, in a 2002 interview with Fox News, explaining why America must
    topple Saddam Hussein.
